If you are interested in learning more about what contractors in your area are paying their employees, the American Road & Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation's (ARTBA-TDF) 2007 "Transportation Contractors Salary and Benefits Survey" can help.
The new ARTBA-TDF publication provides data for 30 office and field positions found in a typical firm in the transportation construction industry. Detailed salary, bonus and benefits information also is included.
The survey results were based on responses from contractors representing firms of all sizes from across the country. Results are presented nationally and in five regional divisions. Specific information is provided on compensation for small (less than $5 million), medium ($5-$50 million) and large (more than $50 million) firms.
The publication also includes high, low and average salaries and bonuses for top executives, office personnel and field workers. Hourly wage and benefit information is provided for hourly workers, both skilled and unskilled. Workforce composition, such as the number of unionized, Hispanic, African-American and women hourly and salaried employees, also is available and is broken down by region.
The 150-page survey can be purchased for $250 by contacting ARTBA's Christy Woodall at 202/289-4434 or by visiting www.artbasalarysurveys.com.
